The Artists’ Network is a member-led and member-driven organization dedicated to helping artists with their business practice. What started as a local outdoor art exhibit just before the turn of this century has now become the premiere organization for artists to learn from, and grow together.
Our members are artists, our staff are artists, and our Board of Directors are artists. Together, we decide what we do and how we do it. And we rely on our membership to direct the path we take. We depend on the membership, along with our volunteers, community partners and generous art-loving sponsors, to help make the organization run smoothly.
Our principal base is the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), although members participate from across the province. Membership is not geographically restricted, all fine artists are welcomed from anywhere in Canada.
As a non-profit organization, we are primarily funded by membership fees and show participation fees. All of our Board positions are volunteer; the only paid positions are our Office Manager and Show Producer.
Independent artists must be, by their very nature, small business owners and entrepreneurs. They not only have to know how to produce fine art, they need to know how to promote themselves and run a fiscally responsible business. Our goal is to help our members develop skills to make them self-sustaining professional artists.

After John’s move to Toronto in 1991, he continued to work in the floral industry and finally took the steps to open his own shop. In May of 1993, just in time for the Mother’s Day weekend, the grand opening of Garden’s Path was a phenomenal success.

We are trying to advocate for a more sustainable wardrobe through resale and education.
Here are some facts; the fashion industry currently produces 10% of all humanity’s carbon emissions (that’s more emissions than all international flights and maritime shipping combined) and is the second-largest consumer of the world’s water supply.
Clothing production has roughly doubled since 2000 plus many store returns cost too much to re-stock and is cheaper for the company to damage and dump. So in total, up to 85% of textiles go into landfills each year – that’s one truckful being dumped to be burned every second.
Our overconsumption has become a serious issue – so much so that the UN has made it one of the 17 sustainable development goals to save our planet.

We are all peeps related to the food and beverage industry and are deep rooted in it. Our idea of a Roti joint came about due to Toronto’s love for the product. But what we noticed was appreciation and demand for a product that was somewhat mediocre! Now, no offense to other joints serving Roti, but we dare to say that our product is fresher, superior and gives you the flexibility to make your own Roti the way you like it. Simple and fresh ingredients put together with some quintessential complex flavored Indian inspired curries or sauces as some may call it.
And that’s why the name “My Roti Place” – because it’s truly “Your Roti Place” – just made the way you like it!

Hi! My name is Andrea, and I’m the founder and owner of Party et Cie. Many eons, and what feels like a lifetime ago, I left my native Toronto, and moved to New York City to study fashion design. My childhood had always been filled with sewing, drawing, crafting and above all, creating. I was in my element. In the mid 2000’s, I finished my studies and launched my own line. I was living out my childhood dream as a fashion designer in New York City. It was tough times to start but in addition to a lot of hard work, sleepless nights and pounding the pavement, I was fortunate enough to be caught in the economic and celebrity bubble. My designs were featured in magazines such as Nylon, Lucky, Marie Claire, and People, and could be found on the arms of celebrities like Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan and Beyoncé. I sold to boutiques and department stores in Canada, the United States, and internationally. Things were going swimmingly.
Then the economic collapse of 2008 happened. That very same year, however, I married the love of my life, and soon after we had our first child. I had always intended to be a stay at home mom. My husband was offered a wonderful job in Toronto, so I closed up shop and we moved back home. We had two more children, and although life was chaotic, being a stay at home mom was my most rewarding job thus far.
But, I still felt the need to create. I decided to channel my creative compulsions into my children’s parties, by way of planning, decorating, and cake creating. My love for event planning grew, and soon I was volunteering to host holiday parties, bridal showers, baby showers and birthdays for friends and family alike. However, I was frustrated at the lack of selection and availability of tasteful party supplies in Canada, and I often had to piece together my “party visions” from several different sources. I determined that there needed to be one place in Canada that offered an extensive selection of tasteful party supplies, and so Party et Cie was conceived. My aim is to help like minded individuals to achieve their “party visions” for their loved ones, and through the blog, I am hoping to give fun party styling tips, as well as demonstrate interesting diy projects. I hope you enjoy this journey
Founded in 2007 by Aaron Doucet and Colleen Doherty, Philistine initially established itself in Toronto’s west side as a vintage purveyor at local flea markets and pop-ups. In September 2010, we took the plunge and opened our first brick and mortar in the heart of the Parkdale neighbourhood. After a few years growing the business and incorporating new clothing and lifestyle items, we made the move to our current space at 928 Queen Street West.
Though we’ve grown and changed over the years, our goal has always been the same: to provide stylish and well made clothing and goods to our community and beyond. We feel we fill a gap in Toronto’s retail scene — bridging classic, timeless style with fun and functional pieces. Now, after 10 years in the biz, our roster includes over 60 affordable and premium brands. We are proud to represent some of the best lines around.
It’s full steam ahead in 2022 as we expand our very own in-house line, bring our web presence to the next level and embark on opening our second storefront in Toronto’s east end.
“A former Leslieville auto repair shop, recessed from the street with a large, paved area in front, now houses a modern coffee shop bathed in natural tones. Te Aro (named after a New Zealand suburb) sells espresso and brewed coffee made with beans roasted on-site and the ubiquitous coffee shop sandwiches, cookies, scones as well as equipment for making coffee. The spacious interior is a welcome novelty and stroller-friendly to boot.” – Toronto.com

Great coffee is no accident; it’s a cumulative effort between many dedicated workers from farm to café. Pig Iron’s task as a roaster is framed by the work done before the coffee reaches our cafe. At Pig Iron, they collaborate with farmers, sourcers, and importers that are quality-focused to bring in the most complex and ultimately delicious coffees that can be found. Using high-quality green coffee allows Pig Iron to roast with a light touch, bringing out the inherent sweetness and complexity of the coffee itself. Not only does roasting this way make the coffee taste better, it also enables Pig Iron to tell each individual coffee’s story by allowing coffee drinkers to experience flavours accountable to the coffee’s territory, cultivation, and processing.
Pig Iron is not just a coffee roaster, it’s a company driven by coffee lovers. With a strong belief in craft, and the ability to take something that’s seemingly simple and make it extraordinary, we never stop experimenting. We are coffee brewers. We are coffee drinkers. And so every coffee is put through a myriad of brew methods with an artful touch and mind for science. We want to taste our coffee like you will because, after all, the story really ends with you: the coffee drinker.
The Purple Penguin is please to share espresso based coffee and fresh baked goods with our neighbourhood.

Quick Clean Laundry Centre was founded in 1972. Prior to the opening, Gordon Grigoroff had been servicing the equipment of other laundry facilities in Leslieville and surrounding areas. With his determination and insight, and with the help of his father Alexander Grigoroff, Gordon decided to open his own store. The store was originally equipped with top load washers and single pocket dryers. Today we have a wide variety of washers and dryers, including some of the largest front load washers around. Our store is attended and equipped with multiple folding stations and seating areas. We offer Wash and Fold Services, Alteration Services, and we are the first Laundromat to offer a Washer-Dryer Transfer Service.
Since the beginning, Quick-Clean Laundry Centre has been a family owned and operated business. Currently in it’s 3rd generation of operation, our goal has always been to provide the best customer service possible. Backed by our tradition of quality service, Quick-Clean Laundry Centre is proud to continue to serve the people of Leslieville and surrounding areas.
Our story began in Edinburgh, Scotland, atop a mountainous hill known as Arthur’s Seat. Below the cliffs of Salisbury Crags is a pathway created by labourers after the Radical War of 1820. This path is known as the Radical Road.
Co-founder Simon da Costa spent many days walking along the Radical Road and it was there that he first dreamt of starting a microbrewery. Jon Hodd had a similar vision and the two brewers joined forces to release Canny Man, a Barrel Aged Scotch Ale and The Wayward Son, a Belgian Style Golden Ale. Partnering with Julian Holland and Steve Davis has now allowed Radical Road Brewing Co. to continue the journey from a part time operation into something bigger, better and ever evolving.
We believe that consumers make better real estate decisions when they have access to data and smart advice.
One in every 100 people in Toronto is a licensed real estate agent—and yet, not enough Torontonians are getting the real estate advice they need.
For too long, the residential real estate sales industry, brokerages and agents have been focussed on making sales and managing transactions, not advising consumers on the bigger picture—like whether it’s the right time for you to be buying or selling.
That’s why we launched Realosophy, an independent, full-service real estate brokerage company powered by highly skilled, full-time agents who are committed to our philosophy.

To some, a workout is simply a workout. But in our house, it is much deeper than that. It’s a statement, a defining point, and a chance to show yourself that every drop of sweat, every weight lifted and each rep earned is another step closer towards that greater goal. It’s about falling and getting back up. It’s about showing up for your RND family, the uphill climb and facing adversity together and head-on. It’s about working to make your dream a reality. Most of all, it’s about embracing your personal journey and defying your own limits. This is the greatness we strive for.

For a long time, I’ve wanted to give a muse to my career and life’s work. I’ve always wanted my efforts to be grounded in something meaningful and I want to feel righteous over how I create that path for myself. What I’ve always tried to do is be useful to others, contributing to their growth as I pursued my own. This is not to say what I’ve done thus far hasn’t been rooted in those intentions. But, for years I’ve contemplated an appropriate name to give to what I wanted to create. This was really important, because I wanted my work and it’s effect that it has on others to not be attached to my name, but rather an idea. At the end of the day, it isn’t about me. It’s about the craft and the people it reaches.
The intention behind ÜNDA is to create a positive ripple effect towards all aspects of our lives. Whether that is physical or mental, internal or external. I believe that growth in one area should facilitate the potential for growth in all areas.
